Nathaniel G. Lew  
Raised in Larchmont, New York, Nathaniel Lew has been singing seriously since the age of twelve, when he sang the treble solos in Leonard Bernstein's Chichester Psalms and Benjamin Britten's Ceremony of Carols with the Juilliard Pre-College Chorus. His voice then changed, but, undaunted, he went on to sing tenor with the Yale Glee Club, the Choir of Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, and the UC Berkeley Chamber Chorus, incidentally picking up degrees from the same institutions. In a decade spent in the San Francisco Bay Area, he sang with the Philharmonia Chorale and Volti. He also served as director of Ars Subtilior Medieval Vocal Ensemble, Vox Populi Renaissance Vocal Ensemble, the UC Berkeley Chorus, the Chorus of Festival Opera of Walnut Creek, and the Choir of Montclair Presbyterian Church in Oakland.

Nathaniel is currently Associate Professor of Music and Director of Choral Activities at Saint Michael's College in Colchester, Vermont, where he teaches music history, music theory and humanities. For the College's choral program, he has commissioned a series of choral compositions, including a major new work by Terry Riley. He holds a Ph.D. in Musicology from UC Berkeley, and his academic research focuses on twentieth-century British music, a topic on which he has published articles and presented papers at national and international conferences.
